About Andy

Thanks for checking out my site! My name is Andy Murdock (you’ve probably figured that out by this point) — I’m a writer, editor and content strategist. On the professional side of things I’ve worked primarily in travel and technology (Airbnb & Lonely Planet), and I’ve also worked with brands in science, medicine, food, lifestyle, entertainment, and a variety other industries. My expertise includes content strategy, social media strategy, and how to scale content and social media processes at an organizational level.

On the unprofessional side of things, you can often find me peering at plants, pretending not to be an insufferable foodie, poking around the backroads of Northern California and trying not to sound too terrible on guitar.

My writing has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, CNN, Vox, Discovery, USA Today, BBC Travel, Gadling, Thrillist, Savvy Sugar, and more, as well as in several Lonely Planet books. See my most recent publications on Contently.

Please feel free to reach out any time on either Twitter or LinkedIn.
